  • Highland cows and calves

    These proud bovines originate from the Scottish Highlands. Their furs take various shades, from black to blond, red to silver (for more details, please consult the highland color chart!).

    Able to survive in extreme weather conditions, Highland cows are remarkable due their impressive horns. Offered in all cuts, for the spider to the classic roast, Highland beef is ideal for summer barbecues, but is objectively good all year around.

  • pigs

    The domestic pig (Sus scrofa domesticus, pork):

    Pigs originate from Asia Minor, more precisely Turkestan, and will colonize that part of the world before mankind. Intelligent, especially when time comes to eat, pigs are incredibly vigorous animals (you may think faith moves mountains, well, the boar as well!).

    While this fascinating creature is often associated with the wild boar, it really comes from the wild pig family.

    This delicious creature from head to toe will be part of all delicatessen, from English breakfast to blood sausage. Hummm! Scrumptious! At Au pied Levé, we raise only ancient pig varieties, such as Large Blacks and Tamworth pigs.

    At Au Pied Levé farm, you will find a variety of products cooked on site from our pigs, for example confit pig shank meat pie seasoned with dark ale, a variety of sausages as well as all possible meat cuts.

  • Boer goats

    The Boer goat: Originating from South Africa, its name comes from the Afrikaans “Boerbok” which signifies “the farmer’s goat”.

    This meat goat is not quite a house pet. Indeed, curious and sometimes mischievous, goats are loving animals that require a good deal of affection and a drill of good quality. Its meat being of such delicate taste, the taste and perfume of a kid, young goat’s leg is worth the detour!

    At Au Pied Levé farm, various young goat products are available.

  • guinea fowls

    These birds from the gallinaceous order will seduce you with their distinct squawk. This bird (because it really is one!) is easily identifiable by its black spotted white feathering and its “wit”.

    Omnivorous, the Guinea Fowl comes from Africa, and precisely from southern Sahara. You may find them in a multiplicity of environments, from the equatorial forest to the semi-desert (which explains its survival in the Eastern Townships).

    Delicious cooked with fresh apples and triple sec, guinea fowl is ideal for posh cocktails or family dinners, enjoy your meal!

    At Au Pied Levé farm, you will find a variety of products prepared with guinea fowl, such as rillettes, confit legs, as well as guinea fowl meat pies.

  • goose

    Goose and duck both carry multiple symbols in our culture and abroad.

    For example, geese were carrying Aphrodite’s chariot, and Belisama, in the Gaul mythology, was riding geese. On the other hand, geese were symbols of impurity in the middle-ages, as leprous had to wear a yellow goose foot around their neck to be easily identified.

    Ducks were initially domesticated in Minor Asia and Egypt and its cousin, the Muscovy duck, on the northern coast of south America.

    Those birds from the anseriformes order are mostly eaten in Asia, but are known for their confit, foie gras and for the many sub-products made with these marvellous creatures.

    At Au Pied levé farm, it is with pleasure that we will have you taste and enjoy fine products of the duck and goose!

  • wild turkey

    You think that you just landed on Mars, well not at all, you are simply looking too closely at the cranium of your favourite wild turkey. Indeed, the head of this bird is covered with a skin that varies from blue to purple.

    Indigenous to North America, the wild turkey, while smaller than its domesticated relative, is as charming, tastier, and less fat. Their gobbling is heartwarming, but do not be tricked by this lovely cry, the animal could surprise you yet!

     

    At Au pied Levé farm, we offer a variety of wild turkey products, breasts, rillettes, and of course whole wild turkeys that will make for unforgettable Christmas.

  • chicken

    Domesticated around 3500 years ago by the Chinese and the Egyptians, this gallinaceous was introduced in Greece by the Persians.

    In the 17th century, Henry IV plebiscite the chicken with the idea of “one chicken in every pot”, as he claimed than even the poorest peasant should have access to a chicken.

    Appreciated for centuries, for its taste, the chicken was also used for multiple other reasons. Indeed, chickens accompanied roman armies to battle, their good appetite being an omen of victory.

     The chicken, while it was domesticated for cockfighting, ended up as a traditional dish for our greatest pleasure!
